11 months down...

... and one more to go. It is so crazy to me that it has only been 11 months. I feel so comfortable with Brandon and feel like I know him so well. The past 11 months have been incredible. Since it was our last month to be able to celebrate on a monthly basis, we decided to celebrate the anniversary. After this, it will always be annual anniversaries (which is not enough by the way!).

We had a softball game on the actual anniversary(Wednesday) so we celebrated Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday!

Brandon got me flowers! And wrote me a very sweet note that I hung up at my desk at work.

We went to eat at Cafe Rio (to use a free meal coupon) and went to Tomasso's afterwards for dessert (to use a buy one get one free coupon!) Tomasso's is in the Riverwoods and has tons of flavors of italian ice! We then went on a walk around Riverwoods and enjoyed the weather.
The next night we cooked dinner on our grill that my parents got Brandon
We went and played in our softball tournament.
These are the girls I work with! I love them so much!
After the game we went to Sonic and used another coupon for a 99 cent Chiller!

Thursday we made an awesome meal that our friend Matt Stanley made in Bear Lake. It is so good! I swear. Here are the details.

Put in a crock pot:
2 chicken breasts (I put them in frozen)
potatoes
carrots
cream of chicken soup (I use 1 can)
ranch dressing
diet coke or dr. pepper
seasoning and salt to taste
*this is all up to you. Put as much of everything as you want. Put it all in the pot on low heat for about 6-8 hours. Shred the chicken before serving.

We then went on a bike ride. I haven't had a bike since I was in 6th grade and I have really wanted one! So my parents gave me one of their old bikes and I love it!
We decided to ride to Sub Zero (that way we didn't feel as bad about eating ice cream, right?!) and we used another free coupon we had.


(We are trying to save money for many bills we need to pay in the next month. Can you tell?! We live by coupons!)

And lastly...
I LOVE BEING MARRIED!!!
